Dighom produces drones and soundscapes, but no new age or elevator muzak. There is always a tension keeping your mind awake. It's very important to Dighom to turn into a mental constitution that permits that music plays the musician and not vice versa. His music would be unthinkable without a living spirituality, where music plays a main role. Don't be afraid: You don't need to convert to some suspicious pagan religion. The awareness of music as an existing intelligence, that is able to communicate, is all there is about Dighom's philosophy. Thus a musician is a messenger and a servant of this entity. It's very similar to the spirituality of the Native American Indian. No dogmatism, everything is god.
Almost all of his music is made without samples and synths and it's recorded live without overdubs. The main oscillator is a selfmade fretless bass, sometimes he uses a modified guitar. These are heavy processed through several FX-Boxes. Dighom likes to control a lot of parameters as well as random processes. Every now and then some fieldrecordings are admixed.
For this album Dighom tried to imagine the communication of trees. The music possibly assists people to enter a state of mind which is necessary to get in contact with the spirits of the forest.

saying goodbye to your body.
Wow, These tracks have become some of my favorite material to listen to. This is intensly gorgeous works that sucks your mind into it instantly. I could listen to (in particular to tracks 1 and 3) on an endless loop forever without getting tired of it. This is top notch ambient.

You must hear this
This ep is the most relaxing music I have on my entire computer. Vibrating Colours is something I listen to when I really do need a break from everything and I do listen to this often. Do yourself a favor, try this ep and experience how your worries and cares seem to slip away with this music. This is more than music, it's therapy for your soul.
